Here we are with 5 of the hottest hotel spring openings of 2015. Different destinations and different styles are the keys to our top 5 spring’s opening chart.
1 – New York’s Baccarat hotel
Baccarat Hotels & Resorts translates the perfect craft and noble heritage of the legendary, 250-year-old French crystal maker into an elegant lifestyle. In March, the French brand opened its first hotel and residential space in New York – in an impressive 50-story tower designed by Skidmore, Owings & Merrill.
2 – Kyoto’s Suiran Luxury collection hotel
An authentic, ryokan-style experience awaits in this historic Kyoto site – a peaceful riverfront haven steps from the Tenryuji Temple.
3- Gotham Manchester hotel
The owners transformed the former bank building into a Gotham themed hotel that gets its inspiration from the Art Deco heritage of the building which first opened its doors 80 years ago. Keeping in mind the buildings banking past, the designers have incorporated many related features, such as gold ingot toiletry displays, money bag style laundry bags, and typewriters on the wall.
4 – Park Hyatt Sanya
Park Hyatt Sanya Sunny Bay Resort in Hainan Island, designed by the award-winning Belgian architect Jean-Michel Gathy, is designed to resemble a private mansion by the sea.. As in private homes, the spaces are flexible and with only 207 rooms and villas across the 70,000 sq m property, guests can enjoy the luxury of privacy and space. Almost all the guestrooms enjoy breath-taking beach and ocean views from panoramic windows stretching from one side of the room to the other, further extended by perpendicular mirrored glass at one side, creating the impression of a 270-degree view.
5- Swissôtel The Bosphorus Istanbul
The west wing of Swissôtel The Bosphorus Istanbul opened in February 2015, with 167 Classic Guestrooms, 28 Corner Rooms, and three Suites. The seven Loft Suites will be completed in May 2015 and the full renovation work will be complete in Spring 2016
The contemporary new look lets the light of the Bosphorus flood into the guestrooms, fusing the very best of Swiss sophistication, precision and simplicity, with the warmth of Turkish culture. From the colors of the Bosphorus and the cityscape, to the textures of the Dolmabahce Gardens, the entwining influences of both Europe and Asia are present in each space. The Bosphorus strait shimmers into view thanks to Chew’s emphasis on floor to ceiling windows in every room and suite, ensuring guests have a real sense of place each time they return.
